Fountain Square, Cincinnati

4.4
Attend a free concert, admire the centrally located fountain, and gaze at the giant LED screen at Fountain Square. The center of the city’s civic, social, and commercial life, the square features water jets spouting from the floor that kids can run through, restaurants and pubs, plenty of tables and chairs, and an ice rink in the winter,. The 13 m (43 ft) bronze fountain in the middle of the square displays four figures representing the four principal uses of water--steam, water-power, navigation, and fisheries--around one central figure. If you need refreshment, lap up spouts of fresh water--the piece was designed as a drinking fountain. Park your car in the garage under the square for a fee, or lock your bike to the complimentary bicycle racks in the square.

  • Fountain square was great when I was a kid growing up in Cincinnati in the 70s and it has really expanded over the years to become even more of an attraction and cement itself as the heart of downtown Cincinnati. Great restaurants close by, really nice family events all year round with parking right underneath. Excellent.
